Karnataka Bengaluru Coronavirus June 16 Highlights: Karnataka Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar said that the private hospitals in the state would be roped in to treat COVID-19 patients and the government will fix rates for everything, from testing to treatment.
Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru on Monday, Sudhakar said, “private nursing homes and corporate hospitals, with a large number of beds, will have to set up isolation wards and come forward to treat COVID-19 patients in coming days. The government will fix rates and it will be uniform across the state. Maybe there will be some variation for Bengaluru.”
The instructions will be issued in this regard soon by the state government. “Only government hospitals alone cannot provide treatment, hence both private and government sectors should join hands to control coronavirus,” he added.
